We are still confident that Intel could do a 3.33 part, and it will be certainly making a 3.0/1333 for Woodcrest in about three weeks, so there seems to be little problem with a limited number of selected microprocessors.
Intel looks to be doing what Nvidia and ATI keep doing to each other, waiting for one side to pick a number and then beating it by just enough to claim victory. This ups margins and makes for a more profitable part, or a cheaper part if it is feeling altruistic.
